Google don't seem to mind that they were dropped from iOS 6's Maps app, and plan to make a triumphant return to the upcoming OS from Apple. A recent post from Google exec Jeff Huber has hinted that Google will not be leaving the iOS map scene, and instead will make a push with its own specifically-designed mapping app.

The news broke today from a Google+ post celebrating a new Google Street View exhibit at the Computer History Museum. It was in a response to a comment expressing dissatisfaction with Apple's forthcoming Maps app. Huber said that Google is looking forward to "providing amazing Google Maps experiences on iOS".

 

Another user stepped forward and asked Huber to elaborate on this, asking if he meant iOS users could expect a new dedicated app, or web-based services. Huber didn't provide any further details on Google's iOS plans.
